Ingredients (Serves 1)

  • 1-2 potatoes (160 g)
  • 80 g pork trimmings
  • [A]

    • 1 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1/2 tbsp sugar
    • 1 tsp mirin
      Note

      Sake made with alcohol and rice-malt, mixed into glutinous rice, then fermented. In Japan, it is used to add luster and to sweeten ingredients.

    • 2 tbsp water
  • Green nori seaweed powder, as needed
    Note

    Filamentous seaweed, dried and made into powder.

Directions

1

Peel the potatoes and cut into 4 to 8 equal pieces. Soak in water to remove the starch.

2

Pour a generous amount of water into a pot, add the potatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and boil the potatoes for 3 to 4 minutes. When the potatoes are done, add the pork and boil until the color changes.

3

Pour away the water and shake the pot vigorously over medium heat to allow any remaining water to evaporate and to fluff up the potatoes. Add A and coat the pork and potatoes as you boil off the liquid. Arrange in a dish and sprinkle with green nori seaweed powder.
